The antioption bill was then launched
upon its congressional voyage. Mr.
Hatch opened the debate with a speech
in favor of the bill.
When his time expired Warner (N.
Y.) delivered a vigorous speech against
the measure. Bryan (Neb.) considered
this a bill to prevent gambling in farm
products and it was unjust to his consti
tuents (who were mainly farmers) that
the other men should have the right to
affect the price of their product if they
had taken the risk of rain, drouth, grass
hoppers and chinchbugs. There was no
difference between the action of the
burglar who went to a man's home and
robbed him of his goods and the action
of the man who, on the stock exchange,
drove down the price of another man's
product and thus deprived him of so
much to which he was justly entitled.
At 5:03 the house adjourned.

Monday, after some routine business, en
tered on the 12th week of the tariff de
bate. The temperature was sweltering,
the mercury standing 81 in the chamber.
Some private bills were passed, and
while tho senate was discussing a bill,
which had been introduced by Mr. Peffer
and favorably reported by the committee
on agriculture, to pay $2.00 for an iu
vention that would utilize electricity or
gaseous vapors as a motor for agricul
tural machinery, the tariff Jjill came up.
Mr. Harris, however, allowed thepa.ssngn
of a joint resolution directing the secre
tary of war to appoint a commission of
engineers to examine and report upon
the cost of deepening tho harbors of Su
perior and Dr.luth. The tariff bill was
then laid before the senate.
It was not until coal was reached that
opposition developed. The house bill
placed coal on the free list. The finance
committee's amendment placed a duty of
40 cents on bituminous cpal and shale,
15 cents on slack and culm and 15 per
cent ad valorem on coke.
As soon as the clerk had read this par
agraph Mr. Hill and Mr. Peffer jumped
to their feet. The New York senator
was recognized, and he sent to the clerk's
desk an amendment to relegate bitumi
nous coal and shale to the free list.
Senator Hill said that he reserved
the right to vote for or against the tariff
bill when "I see what it is as a
finality,' passionately exclaiming, "God
knows what the bill will be like when it
passes the senate and comes out of con
ference! God knows how man more ex
tortions and concessions will be wrung
from the unwilling hands of the commit
tee!"' The vote on Mr. Hill's motion to place

true and loyal Americans favor a tariff
only that deals out justice to every enter

of local protection, it is financially un
wise, for no portion of the country can

evade the inspection. Sick persons were

Fate or Three Men Who Landed on Mew

men who were killed by cannibals of
New Ireland. A Japanese trading
schooner went to the island and the Ger

native of the island went ashore to trade.
They could not barter to their satisfac
tion and the natives, enraged at not re
ceiving the wares, killed the three men.

the two Japanese were not eaten, their
flesh being deemed too sour.

You say you are in favor of a tariff
for protection "high enough to enable
American manufacturers to compete
with foreigners as far as the difference
iu wages is concerned." Then as regards
England the tariff should be as high as
7? per cent, which Mr. Harris and Mr.
Carlisle in their report to the senate said
was the difference between English
wages and American, ours being 77 per
It is true that an average tariff rate of
77 per cent would effectually prevent
importation, but it is equally true that
it would not for any length of time in
crease the price of a single commodity,
notwithstanding the assertion of Mr.
Cleveland to the contrary, and for two
substantial reasons first, because home
competition would, as it has always
done and will, regulate prices; second,
the less we import the greater we will
manufacture. The cost of manufacture
decreases as the volume of manufacture
is increased, thereby enabling the man
ufacturer to lower the price of his com
modity. These are the chief factors that
enter into ever' industrial enterprise,
and clearly account for the invariable
decline in prices under the protectivo

The interesting question is, Did they
make it high enough to cover the differ
ence as far as wages are concerned? The
true answer to that question is in the fact
that even under this tariff denounced
by the ignorant as robbery and as uncon
stitutional the foreigner was enabled
up to June 80, 1893, as statistics show,
to rush into our market annually com
petitive commodities to the vast amount
of about 400,000,000, and yet the present
is denounced as a high tariff and a rob
bery. Who is robbed? The working
man, if anybody is, of the employment
,that that vast importation would give
him and our country of the wealth aris
ing therefrom if manufactured in Amer
ica. The position you have taken regarding
this question as reported, and particu
larly as regards the income tax, must
meet with the approval of every man
who is possessed of sound reasoning
power regardless of party affiliations.
The people will owe a debt of gratitude
to the man who can claim that he de
feated such a measure as the Wilson
bill, which undoubtedly would bring
upon the country disaster and ruin.
Very truly yours. W. S. Manning.

for themselves under the direction of

been, and the result must be, and the
result shall be a premium upon perjury
and r. penalty for honesty and truth.

Their Kxpor of Goods to America Have

The New York importers of foreign
goods were not satisfied with their first
meeting at Cooper Union, when the name
of ex-President Harrison was applauded,
and when they agreed to swallow the
"carcass out of which the festering flies
of lies and perjury constantly rise."
They wanted another meal of it, so held
a second meeting, but did not publish
this time the names of any importers,
lawyers, presidents, chairmen, free trade
editors and eating honse proprietors who
signed a call, but held it under the aus
pices of the Manhattan Single Tax club.
The urgency for the passage of the
Wilson tariff bill, so called, is becoming
very pronounced. Trade and business
are in a critical condition in England,
where the volume of exports is decreas
ing, and particularly so far as the United
States is concerned, the decrease in ship
ments to this country up to March 31
last exceeding the entire falling off

foreign countries for the quarter. In an
